Hey Jeff my mate is working on a prototype for the upper air box with 2 tubes,take a look.This one is for test fitting etc and is a little rough but you get the general idea.

looks good . you going to vac form them out of plastic???? or metal would be cool too, easier to fab more brackets to for other stuff (like a radiator).

NJ plates ship tomorrow!!!

Hi Jeff
These will be in alloy or metal,i haven't actually seen it myself just 3 pic's but I'm picking it up today for a trail fit,first thing i see is that the rear tubes need to be further apart more like the stock box as i said this is his first prototype and i will recommend the changes needed and he will then start making a few for me,this unit will work well with the plastic lid and will all bolt on in minutes all that will be required is an extra tube and some clamps,here's the front pic.Will look cool in alloy all polished up !

Thanks again for the plates Jeff,if you want any other Aussie items let me know(no i can't send a Koala !)

Cheers mate :D

Just a suggestion. Make sure it will work with an aftermarket spun aluminum tank, and radiator. I'm sure you can search the various forums to get an ide of how some are mounted.

Got 10 air-box lids shipping out to a US customer this week,the 350 lids have been selling quite well since i started producing them and ive had all good reports so far.Im also doing several projects for the 3 wheelers guys with radiator shrouds for the Yamaha TRI-Z,83/84 250R and 85/86 250R Short Track Kits,all of these parts are now discontinued so there is a growing market for OEM reproduction parts.

PS
Dont forget a pic of your lid fitted for my happy customer files  :wink:
